1 chapter in 1 day!


Love medical drama and sizzling romances? Why not write your own Medical Romance!

Here at Harlequin, we’re looking for fresh, new voices and exciting stories! From March 24th, we’re offering a lightning fast assessment of your manuscript – get a response in just 24 hours!

 Send us your first chapter and a synopsis between Monday 24th March and Thursday 24th April 2014 and the Medical Romance team will send you a response in 1 day! (Sadly we don’t work weekends, so if you submit on Friday, you’ll receive an answer on Monday).

 Medical Romance is all about drop-dead gorgeous heroes and feisty heroines! Set in the Medical world, where sensual tension and emotionally-charged conflict runs high, your medical professionals are placed under pressure to save the day – leading to life-changing encounters.

 So if you love strong and sexy medical heroes and heroines (see guidelines for more details), send your first chapter and a synopsis to 24hoursinM&B@hqnuk.co.uk and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours!

 The Medical Romance team is looking for fresh, new, innovative voices, and at the end of the month, will choose their favourite 3 chapters to go through to a public vote and the chance to win guaranteed mentoring with a Medical series editor*!

Hi Gayatri,
No, the first 3 chapters do not need to be finished. The deadline of April 24th is for first chapters only. So if you have written your first chapter, do send it in by April 24th!
